Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (Bersatu) President, Tan Sri Mahiaddin Md. Yasin today declared that the party is ready to face UMNO in the next General Election.
He said Bersatu is aware of UMNO’s stand since its last general assembly and moving forward it is also ready to face them in the future.
“I understand they said they won’t work with us in any way going forward, so we can interpret that to mean that they will fight against us. That’s the reality of politics. Sometimes we are allies, sometimes we are enemies.”
The Perikatan Nasional chairman said that at the end of the day, politicians can say what they want but as a democracy, the people will decide on their own.
“There could be three-cornered fights or whatever. We will take it as a challenge. This is democracy so the people will get to decide.”
“They can see for themselves I think. The stimulus we did, where RM530 billion worth of aid was disbursed under Bantuan Prihatin and also how we handled the Covid 19 pandemic and the vaccination process which has improved,” he said.
Muhyiddin was speaking to reporters after chairing a meeting with Bersatu leader’s in Sabah today.
UMNO President, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi last night reiterated that The Party will defend Parliament and State seats won in the last GE.
Mahiaddin meanwhile, arrived Kota Kinabalu via a private jet last night.
He was greeted by Sabah Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor who is also Bersatu’s Chief in Sabah.
